CHRONOS - The sea is where you think it is
Experience and play with the potential of your choices
We are our choices.These words by Jean-Paul Sartre resonate in The sea is where you think it is, a dance performance that exists in the here and now. Every moment in our lives offers an endless amount of choices and opportunities to make and take. What withholds us from choosing the unexpected, the decision to do something new? The sea is where you think it is is an experience between dancer and audience in which they discover and play with the potential of their choices.
The sea is where you think it isis a coproduction with Dansmakers Amsterdam and ICK, and is made possible thanks to Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst.
CHRONOS is a young Amsterdam collective of four independent dance artists. They are all graduates from the Modern Theatre Dance at the Amsterdam School for the Arts.

Lois Alexander - Neptune (working title)
A dance installation unveiling the nature of water and people
Water can occur in three states – ice, liquid, or vapor – it is always a subject of change. In this second part of a series about the elements of Nature, Neptune will focus on water. In the form of a dance installation, it questions the ability of nature and people to alter in form, appearance, or nature. The performance will unveil itself through movement and large scale objects. Neptune is a collaboration with scenopgrapher Nina Kay.
Lois Alexander (US, 1991) is a graduate from the Juilliard School in New York. In 2014 she moved to Europe and danced for various choreographers and directors. The solo Fading Fire (2018) was her debut as a choreographer and premiered at You Better Move #4 (Dansmakers Amsterdam). www.loislalexander.com
